Research Interests

Establishing relationships between microstructure and electrical properties in organic materials.

Techniques suited to probe the microstructure of organic materials such as electron microscopy will be applied to derive a more profound understanding of the molecular and film microstructure of selected organic materials. The results obtained will subsequently be applied to explain electrical and optical measurements in order to establish a structure-property relationship capable to describe device performance based on the materials microstructure.
